GREAT SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 4 nights in this great well located apartment in El Raval. It is a block from the metro which is super convenient and within easy walking distance to Las Ramblas and other areas of interest. The apartment is super comfy and clean with a well outfitted kitchen with basic staples (spices, oil, coffee ) on hand. Matt and His mom Sue were both very responsive and gave great directions for arrival and departure. Great stay! Oh and a very nice welcome bottle of Spanish wine!

A VERY GOOD LOCATION IN TOWN

  • 4 of 5
it's the 5th time we come in this place. Very central and quiet location with a very beautifull view on the roofs of Barcelona. The small terrace is very pleasant to relax after a walk or a visit in the city.

SPECTACULAR!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment completely exceeded our expectations! It was spacious, clean, and (as we walked EVERYWHERE!) centrally located in the city. Matt and Sue were the perfect hosts. The information they provided and the organization of everything, was perfect! We didn't know what to expect in regards to our experience in Barelona, but staying at this apartment - for a week - made our stay perfect! SPECIAL NOTE: Not only does this apartment have the PERFECT coffee maker, I loved the blow dryer! After our vacation to Europe last year, I did not expect such nice emenities - special bonus!
If you are contemplating a trip to Barcelona, seriously considering staying in this apartment ... It'll make your trip that much better ?

HEAVEN IN BARCELONA!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is what you dream about when you are planning a vacation. We were on a two month trip in Europe and this was our last stop. I wish we had thought to stay longer than two weeks. Matt and Sue are two of the most gracious helpful people ever. Upon arrival, their was a bottle of wine, a rose for St Jordi Day and coffee for the wonderful coffee maker! The apt is exactly like advertised but oh so much more! The outdoor space is perfect. The bedroom one I wish I had at home and the living area as comfortable as my home. Plus they come in and clean and change linens at the end of the first week! The food shopping at Mercat Antoni is perfect, the wine shop a few blocks away is wonderful as is the pastry and bread shop. The church bells ring the sun shines and everything in the apt works. My only regret is that we didn't book for a longer stay. If you are going to Sagrada Familia book ahead to avoid a four hour wait in line!

A GREAT APARTMENT IN A GREAT LOCATION WITH A GREAT HOST

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent 10 days in Matt's apartment and it perfectly suited our needs. It is exactly as described - clean, comfortable, cosy and quiet.
Located in a small refurbished building on a quiet side street, there is even an elevator - a feature not always available in older European buildings, but very much appreciated!
The apartment itself is bright, airy, filled with light from the many windows, and spotless.
The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The bedroom is quite spacious, filled with light from all the windows, but at night, with the shades drawn and the shutters closed, it is dark for sleeping and QUIET! In spite of its central location, it is surprisingly quiet at night probably due to the fact that the bedroom is located at the back of the apartment. The bathroom has a good shower with lots of water pressure and plenty of hot water.
The real gem in this apartment though is the large sunny terrace. The apartment is located on the top floor of the building, so the terrace has everything going for it - privacy, sun, lovely views over the roof tops of El Raval, and no large buildings overlooking it. It was wonderful to sit there in the morning having breakfast and even better later in the day enjoying wine and snacks we had picked up during the day at the many nearby markets and food stalls.
The apartment is very centrally located, We walked everywhere, at all times of the day and night, and always felt safe. Many of the major attractions and "must see" areas are only a few minutes walk away.
The subway station is just around the corner. The subway itself is efficient, spotlessly clean and very easy to navigate, so travel from the apartment in any direction is easy and effortless.
The neighbourhood around the apartment is multi-cultural, bustling with life and vibrant. You definitely get the feeling that you are experiencing life as a local in this locale, and we enjoyed it very much. You get a far more authentic experience renting an apartment like this one, in a neighbourhood like this, than you ever would staying in a hotel.
We would definitely stay here again when we return to Barcelona and we have already recommended it to friends.
Matt was a great host. Personable, knowledgeable, helpful and readily accessible should we have had the need. 5 stars from us!

BARCELONA IMMERSION

  • 5 of 5
Matt's apt was the perfect spot for our two week Barcelona stay. He's a great host and has done a good job turning the apt into a comfortable base for exploring Barcelona and outlying sights. The location is superb with plenty of food shops and the Sant Antoni Metro very close. We walked to many places, Barri Gotic. Barceloneta, Catalunya Plaza etc. Doing a two week stay we probably cooked in a bit more and found the kitchen adequate, liked eating on the terrace, and the washer was great addition. Also enjoyed nearby restaurants Sesamo, Cera23 and pizza restaurant just next block over on Cera. Felt very safe and Matt was immediately accessible if there was a question or need.

Always meticulously clean, the comfortable and inviting apartment offers vacation stays in a private self-contained apartment featuring a private roof-top terrace, flat screen TV, satellite, high-speed internet and all that you would require to make a home away from home.

As a sea-side city, Barcelona has its own unique way of life and offers all of the pleasures of being by the sea with all of the comforts and diversity of a major city. Come and experience it for yourself; from the rushing excitement of the Barcelona Grand Prix, the renowned Sant-Joan national Catalan holiday, and the SONAR and Merce festivals.
